Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!
Recently I was watching a rerun of the Bollywood film “Dear Zindagi” on television. A beautiful movie where the protagonist is overwhelmed by an incident of her childhood, which reflects on her present life relationships. Her personal life seems to be in doldrums. A chance meeting with a Psychologist, helps her resolve her problems giving her the confidence to view life with a beautiful perspective. Definitely, a movie many can relate to, worth a watch!
There is one line in the movie which the therapist uses during one of the sessions. “Don’t let the past blackmail your present to ruin a beautiful future”. Such a profound statement, isn’t it?
Life can throw quite a few unpleasant challenges at us. Many, we shrug off, some teach us a lesson, while a few hurt us, blemishing our personality to a great extent. At times, we reel under its burden, unable to shrug it off. This manifestation definitely needs to be addressed and set right, else, it could eclipse our future too!
The indelible scar of the past
meanders in the mind’s crevices
whispers secret messages
forays uninvited into dreams
entraps the present
sings haunting lines in hushed tones,
emerges from obscurity
to cast a gloomy shadow
on the future.
Untangle the web of antiquity
steer life on course
the hollow memories of yore
pushes the soul into
an abyss of no return!
